I’m glad Chicago didn’t get it, because the Obama’s and Oprah went to Copenhagen with such a smug attitude that they want it, they can get it
and nothing is going to stop them.
I love that not only did they not get it, but they didn’t even come close, knocked out in the first round.
Not to mention, looking at the cities waiting for the bid, Chicago had a couple of hundred people who didn’t seem bothered and many in the city
didn't actually want it, while Rio and Madrid had thousands wanting it and billions ready to put into it, and you could see they clearly wanted it
for the games, not for the “Because I’m Obama” factor.
It would have put him in his place, he thinks he is the President of the world, clearly not. And contrary to what many of his supporters think, the
world does not worship him.
And to top it off, South America has never had it, they deserve it, give them a shot, Rio has the money for it, Rio wants it and can make it theirs,
so I’m hoping for Rio.
